    I suspect that there's quite a few of them in use overseas. One of my customers is currently manufacturing 50,000 20-round M14 mags per month!

    Does anyone know why the stripper clip guide is a solid block?

    I wonder if they only issue those to Sergeant Majors? :)

    Stripper clip? I thought they had detachable magazines. I think that's a brass deflector.

    Fixed sizing by resizing and uploading, rather than drawing directly from the army.mil site.

    M14s normally have a stripper clip guide where that black rubber-looking block is.

    armors issue them to really good friends and guys with rank up the wazoo who give them to critical personnel.

    the block may be a scope mount for the 2 piece mount.

    Check out the camo pattern. Reminds me of the old ASAT bowhunter stuff (which is highly effective where I live).:)

    some units in both the Marines and Army have, in a fit of common sense, instituted a designated marksman setup. As far as I can tell has been done both officially and unofficially, where one guy in the squad is chosen for his marksmanship abilities and given a rifle that can better make use of those abilities. Usually it is an M14, sometimes with a scope. I have also seen guys riding around Iraq with an M16 with a large hunting type scope, I would guess for the same purpose.

    Traditionally, only the Navy seemed to have M14s, for shipboard use, but the limited supply of infantry M14s seems to be making a comeback lately.
